THANK YOU to SHELLY HENSS, our longtime friend and the best dog groomer east of the Divide!

Noggin, Chloe, and I are heading out on an East Coast talk tour. It’s great to begin the trip looking and feeling like a million bucks. Now if I can just keep Chloe from rolling… she’s part pig but 100% adorable.

Need grooming? Check out Shelly’s new shop, the Butl’RRR’ Bark in Indy. Head to 4149 Boulevard Place for a tour or call her at 463-209-1972 to set up an appointment. Tell her Noggin and Chloe sent you.

LOVE! Lennox perfectly sums up the “why?” of our sport. Mushers LOVE dogs. Period. There’s nothing better than exploring wild places with our best friends and family—the dogs. Yes, it’s love!

MUSH! I adore all of the thank you cards and drawings I received in the mail from the students of Anchorage Public School, Anchorage, Kentucky. It’s wonderful to see how students transform my stories into art. Their accuracy and creativity is amazing!

HOLD ON TIGHT!  This dog team is about to head down a VERY steep mountain. This drawing’s perspective is awesome! The artist portrays what it looks and feels like standing on the sled runners behind a very long string of sled dogs.
